Bryan Cransto Family, Parents, Siblings, Education
Bryan is the middle child of radio actress Annalisa (née Sell; 1923-2004). Bryan’s father was of Austrian-Jewish, German, and Irish ancestry, while his mother was a German immigrant’s daughter.
Kyle, his older brother, and Amy, his younger sister, are his siblings. Bryan grew raised in Canoga Park, California. His father worked several professions before deciding to become an actor, but he did not acquire enough roles to support his family. He eventually left the family when Cranston was 11 years old, and they did not see one other again until he was 22. Cranston and his brother resolved to find their father. He then maintained contact with his father till his father died in 2014.
Bryan has indicated that he based his portrayal of Walter White on his father, who had a stooped posture “like the weight of the world was on his shoulders”.
Bryan was partly raised by his grandparents, who managed a chicken farm in Yucaipa, California. He has described his parents as “broken individuals” who were “incapable of parenting” and caused the family to lose their home through foreclosure.
Bryan was 12 years old in 1968 when he met a young Charles Manson while horseback riding with his adolescent cousin at the Spahn Ranch. It happened roughly a year before Manson ordered the killings of Tate and LaBianca.
Bryan attended Canoga Park High School and was a member of the school’s chemistry club before attending Los Angeles Valley College and earning an associate’s degree in police science in 1976.
